Big case from Florida Supreme Court today on the DHMSV issue of probable cause determination by a hearing officer on a DUI license suspension.

Right result. Reasoning may be bumpy, but they did the right thing.

School is out so the traffic should be lighter. And according to the NWS, our long hot humid summer should be arriving early next week.

Enjoy your summer vacations. Here's hoping the NFL has a season in 2011 or Horace will be writing once less column on the weekends.

CAPTAIN OUT .....

rumpole: I have enjoyed reading your blog since 2006. I therefore wish to notify you first that I will be applying for the regional counsel position advertised june 10th. I am a member of the bar in good standing for over 20 years, have practice criminal felony law for over 15 years, done over 50 jury trials. Obviously I bring less management experience but real criminal law experience to the position. I hope you blog is fair to me when my application becomes public.
